September, 2018

September 1st, 2018, 2:04 p.m. - If you heard me scream, "JAJA!" on Monday night, this show was why

So You Think You Can Dance – "Top 6 Perform": This top 6 was so talented that having to lose any two of them would have been difficult. And yet...Slavik. Guys. Come on. You think Slavik is a better dancer than Darius or Jay Jay? Rating: 5 tubes of lipstick

September 2nd, 2018, 4:49 p.m. - Go forth and tentatively do stuff!

36. Okay Fine Whatever (Courtenay Hameister)
Where was this book ten years ago when I really needed it?? Time to start working on my schedule, Hameister.

Up next: Vox (Christina Dalcher)

September 8th, 2018, 1:15 p.m. - The book everyone should be talking about (wocka wocka)

37. Vox (Christina Dalcher)
Dear HBO: You have had lost of success in the past couple of years with female-centric mini-series based on books (Big Little Lies, Sharp Objects). Make this your next big hit. Please.

Up next: The Perfect Mother (Aimee Molloy)

September 9th, 2018, 5:48 p.m. - Robert! Melanie! People's parents saying nice things about them! What a great week

So You Think You Can Dance – "Top 4 Perform": As far as I can tell, any of the final four could win this, but I think Jensen has earned it the most. She's shown every week how hard she's worked to win. That said, any of the others would be deserving of the victory. Even Slavik, if just for his amazing work in contemporary numbers. Rating: 4 moving boxes

September 13th, 2018, 8:09 p.m. - Being named Midas wasn't the worst thing to happen to that kid

38. The Perfect Mother (Aimee Molloy)
This might also make a good HBO mini-series. I give Molloy a ton of credit, because I came nowhere near figuring out the ending.

Up next: Skinny Dip (Carl Hiaasen)

September 15th, 2018, 2:24 p.m. - I actually thought Genessy might clinch this

So You Think You Can Dance – "Finale": Either Hannahlei or Jensen would have been a very deserving winner (Genessy, too), but there's just something so satisfying about a dancer you've backed from the start running away with the victory. Now let's get Jensen a pro spot on Dancing With the Stars. Rating: 4 times I rolled my eyes at Nigel (but what else is new?)

September 21st, 2018, 2:08 p.m. - Overlong, still good

39. Skinny Dip (Carl Hiaasen)
The Tool/Maureen stuff was pretty pointless and made the book too long, but this is exactly my kind of humor, so I'll definitely be reading more from Hiaasen.

Up next: A Head Full of Ghosts (Paul Tremblay)
